Off the back ofthis consultation and discussionwith you about having an area that helps new members navigate where to get started – we now have a new topic area called Welcome & Getting Started.
This area is to help new members have a clearer starting spot when they land in the forums. It has threads pinned to the top that welcome and also have info on general how to’s in the forums and ideas on what people could put in their first thread. It encourages new members to start a new thread here to introduce themselves in the same way they did in the introduce yourself thread. By having them be new threads in this new topic area it will be much easier for all of us to make sure everyone gets a response and is welcomed by us. We can help point them in the right direction based on what they let us know about them and why they came to the forum.
NB: With the above in mind we will be archiving the introduce yourself thread that currently sits in the Our Stories areas.
A big thanks to all the members that got involved in this consultation and we really encourage everyone to keep an eye on this area to help welcome and reply to new members that come through.
